Details

This stylish, cult 1966 erotic thriller stars French New Wave icons Jean-Louis Trintigant (Amour, The Conformist) and Marie-France Pisier (Stolen Kisses, Bed and Breakfast).

Trintignant plays a drug courier smuggling a stash of cocaine from Paris to Antwerp on the Trans-Europ-Express. Matters are complicated by surreal encounters with police, three filmmakers (who are also on the train making a film about drug-traffickers) and erotic-fantasy sequences featuring Pisier being bound and subjected to Trintignant's masochistic will.

Originally banned by the BBC for scenes of sexual sadism and bondage, Trans-Europ-Express was written and directed by ground-breaking and daring filmmaker Alain Robbe Grillet, best known for his experimental novels, and for writing Alain Resnais’ Last Year in Marienbad.
